Verdict

HOWLONGISAFOOT has been rejuvenated lately by going back over hurdles and scored with a good deal of authority over C&D when stepped back up in trip last time. Despite the ratings increase for that win, he's still got a strong case in his favour on his best form and the nine-year-old will take halting if in the same mood now. Balkinstown chased him home and could cut down the 6L deficit on better terms here while Polo The Mumm should be fitter for the reappearance run at Newton Abbot. Olly Murphy should improve the fortunes of Walk Waterford, who also has the benefit of Alex Ferguson on board in this finale.
